Driver charged $145 for revving rental car too hard6/19/2012
Back in the good old 20th century, when you rented a car you had license free and clear to beat the living hell out of it. Not so now, apparently, with news that a retired Redwood City, Calif. man was charged $145 for supposedly "revving" the engine too hard in a vehicle he rented from Enterprise. When Don Nelson returned the car, the "Check Engine" light was on. He hadn't worried about it as the car seemed to work fine. Even the assistant who checked it didn't seem concerned. But, next thing he knows, he's sent a bill for $145 owing to damage. Mr. Nelson got the media involved and luckily, Enterprise eventually backed down. Luckier still, no one at the company happened to stumble across the severed head in the trunk (just kidding).
Was Enterprise wrong to charge for revving the car too hard?
